Many top Republicans cynically downplayed Trump’s threats even though they themselves once warned of his danger and support of violence. MSNBC’s Ari Melber documents this behavior in a special report, citing an important new article from historian Timothy Snyder outlining how elected Republicans made a bargain with Trump by drawing on historical lessons about autocrats and propaganda. Snyder himself joins Melber to discuss his analysis, Snyder asserting the GOP is “based on the idea of gaming the system.”(This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 01/18/2021.
